Fabric pilling and handle are important characteristics for home textiles. Treatments, such as preparatory processes and finishing operations, can have a significant effect on the final properties of the fabric. In this research, the pilling performance of bamboo rayon and 50/50 bamboo rayon/cotton fabrics were investigated. Plain and satin weaves were selected. Fabrics were pre-treated with and without singeing. The pilling resistance of singed bamboo rayon and singed bamboo rayon/cotton fabrics were comparatively better than unsigned fabrics. Sanforizing, softening, binder application, and biopolishing were also studied. The binder application technique improved overall pilling performance for plain and satin weave structures without sacrificing fabric characteristics and properties.
